About this book

Nowadays, there is tremendous interest in an integrated imaging approach to urogenital diseases. This interest is tightly linked to the recent technological advances in ultrasound, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and nuclear medicine. Significant improvements in image quality have brought numerous clinical and diagnostic benefits to every medical specialty.

This book is organized in nine parts and twenty-seven chapters. The first six chapters review the normal macroscopic and radiological anatomy of the urogenital system. In subsequent chapters, urogenital malformations, lithiasis, as well as infectious and neoplastic disorders of the kidneys, bladder, urinary collecting system, and male and female genitalia are extensively discussed. The pathologic, clinical, and diagnostic (instrumental and not) features of each disease are described, with particular emphasis, in neoplastic pathologies, on primitive tumors and disease relapse. The statics and dynamics of the pelvic floor are addressed as well and there is a detailed presentation of state-of-the-art interventional radiology.

The volume stands out in the panorama of the current medical literature by its rich iconography. Over 1000 anatomical illustrations and images, with detailed captions, provide ample evidence of how imaging can guide the therapeutic decision-making process. Imaging of Urogenital Diseases is an up-to-date text for radiologists, urologists, gynecologists, and oncologists, but it also certainly provides an invaluable tool for general practitioners. Its succinct, well-reasoned approach integrates old and new knowledge to obtain diagnostic algorithms. This information will direct the clinician to the imaging modality best-suited to yielding the correct diagnosis.

About the authors

About the Editors:

The incidence of urogenital disorders and the biological processes that explain them led the authors to chose their professions in gynecology and urology and then to specialize in the radiological aspects of the respective organ systems. Their commitment as practitioners and educators has remained strong over many years of practice.

Prof. Grazioli is already Springer author (MRI of the Liver, of which the 2nd ed. was published in 2006, ISBN 88-470-0335-4) and very actively participating in international congresses.

Since 1993 he teaches Diagnostic Imaging at the School of Internal Medicine and the School of Gynecology and Obstetrics in Brescia.

He is author of 65 publications in diagnostic imaging (particularly on CT and MR applications). Since 1990 he is collaborating at various trials on the utilization of paramagnetic contrast media in magnetic resonance.

Prof. Olivetti specialized in oncology (subspecialty: genitourinary tract) and radiology and is since 2002 Chief of the Dept. of Radiology in Cremona. He teaches Diagnostic Imaging in the School of Radiology in Brescia. He is author of over 140 journal articles and co-ed. in 6 books in italian language. This is the first book he publishes with Springer.

Reviews

From the reviews: “This richly illustrated concisely written (and nicely translated) reference book aims to present the state of the art in both clinical practice and diagnostic imaging combining old and new knowledge and techniques to achieve the best diagnostic algorithms. It is organised into 9 sections … and 27 chapters contributed by Italian experts from different disciplines. While mainly intended for urologists, gynaecologists, oncologists and radiologists, it would also serve as a useful reference book for general practitioners.” (The International Continence Society, Vol. 6 (2), July, 2010)
